Great family

This was such a sweet family. They are welcome back at our home anytime. Maybe one day we will make it to Canada and get a chance to stay with them. Good luck on your adventures!

Wonderful Port Dalhousie

This boondocking location is lovely! Our hosts really helped us out when "Klutz Carla" struck! Would recommend this place, our hosts were super accommodating. Thank you guys for the help, and the chats! See you when you come to the UK ;)

Perfect stay

We stayed 2 nights on a perfect spot.
The hosts were very friendly, and the neighborhood also
We got some advice how to visit the region, we did follow it, and had a very good day.
Thanks for staying, it was wonderful

Love This Place

Love this town! The hosts said, “stay another night!” OK! So close to town, cool park with a carousel with rides only five cents, and awesome biking/walking trails. Thank you for making the start of my full-time RV trip a great start!

Good location for visiting the falls

This is the closest Boondockers Welcome to the falls. Location is near a beach area with cute little town shops and restaurants you can walk too. The space will fit a 30 foot rig, but that's about it so don't try squeezing something larger into the spot. Host was very nice and accommodating.

Nice stay!

We had a pleasant stay at the Beaches of Dalhousie's location. Site was easy to find, level and protected from the steamy sunshine under a shade tree. It's a great location to explore both Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Wonderful setting!

Just as promised! Walking distance to beach, tourist stores, and restaurants. Jim came to welcome me and had to be coaxed into letting me reimburse him for the electric and water. Finally he begrudgingly accepted just US$5. Setting was quiet and under shade trees. Strongly recommend to others!

Great Loccation

This was our second time here. Jim was very accommodating with everything. W met his wife and family at a local concert downtown. It's a great place to stay. The farmers market in st Catherine's is wonderful. It's close to wineries and Niagara Falls. If you are in the area definitely stay here.

Very easy and friendly

This was very easy to find and the host was welcoming and friendly. A safe place to park for the night only half an hour from Niagara Falls! Thank you again!

Downtown Parking

Had a brief but great stay at this small but adequate location. The hosts made us feel very welcome and offered suggestions on local places/things to see and places to eat. Had 15 amp electric which was great in this heat wave. The quaint village is very walkable with many shops and eateries. A great park and walking trail is also close by.

We will request this location again when in the area and recommend it to others.

Cutest little block! Enjoy a stroll around!

Such a cute little place! We had to arrive in late due to it work schedule but what a beautiful appt that was awaiting us! Highly recommend to anyone! The directions they provide are spot on and the spot is easy in and out! Unfortunately with our work we didn't get to meet them but their communication was excellent and do inviting! I do hope our paths cross on the road!

Great Overnight Stay

Jim was responsive quickly. Although we arrived late after Niagra Falls 10 PM FireWorks, we got all instructions in advance.
The mornig after we had the chance to chat a bit.
Recommended for overnight stop on the way from/ to Niagra Falls to Toronto.

Nice little spot

Sorry we didn't get to meet our hosts, but we had a very nice stay. Port Dalhousie is a great spot to stop and look around, with shops, restaurants, waterfront and bike trails to explore. Thanks!

Pleasant Stay

We recommend this location in a beautiful town on Lake Ontario. Our hosts were very helpful in getting us situated during a very busy time for them.

Quite space

We arrived and got plugged in just fine. Nice and quiet. Lots of quaint stores just around to corner. Coffee, ice cream, a few restaurants.
Kids took off in the am for some coffee (my coffee snob son said, Balzac’s coffee house had the best coffee he’d ever tasted.

I went for a stroll down the street, headed for the beach, and ran into my hosts, who were also out in a stroll! They’re super sweet and we gabbed awhile. So, thankful for the Boondocker family for providing overnight accommodations!

Lovely couple and beautiful area

We are so grateful for the hospitality. Our stay was peaceful in a beautiful little town on Lake Ontario. Our hosts greeted us upon arrival and helped us get situated. We had a nice chat with them and look forward to having a visit from them in the future.

Throughly good time

We spent the evening at Jim and Lisa’s boondocking spot and had a throughly good time. Jim and Lisa popped by with their lovely daughter to welcome us. We chatted a bit and they gave us some awesome tips about the town of port Dalhousie as well as a free dump station. Also they connected us with a friend of theirs that was selling her rig. After a bike tour we popped by her place. We didn’t buy the rig but made a new friend! We spent the evening sitting on a deck overlooking the water watching rowers. All in all a pleasurable stay. Thank you!

I arrived in the evening and left shortly after the sun came up in the morning oh, so I wasn't able to meet the hosts.
They were quick and friendly in responding to emails :-)

Generous, lovely family

They welcomed us with open arms! They have water and power nearby and the neighborhood is perfect for morning or evening strolls to restaurants, bars, or the park by the lake! Thanks a million guys.

Close to beach

Loved our stay with our hosts. Helpful and responded quickly to our last minute request. Location is close to beach for beautiful sunsets and even found some lake glass! Would definitely stay again.

Great location!

Nice quiet spot in the middle of Port Dalhousie. Hosts were very easy to contact and responsive. We had a great evening in a local pub with the locals, then a nice breakfast at a local eatery . Also in a short walk is a beach and park on Lake Ontario. Definitely would stay again when passing through.

Excellent central friendly location

this location was excellent even though it was tight getting in for our 30 foot RV we loved it as it was in the middle of all the action. It was an extremely busy weekend with tge $5 Wingfest and the rowing championships going on but we had an awesome time. Jim and Lisa both made us feel very welcome and we encourage anyone to park rate downtown with them and enjoy the time at the beach which is only a short walk away. . take a ride on the 5¢ carousel it's vintage and worth the time just to go downtown for that. A stroll on the beach and into the water is a must as well. If you're there on the Saturday night go to The Kilt and Clover for the 1099 steak meal. It was really busy and the service wasn't as great as we're told it normally is but give it a try. Thanks again Jim and Lisa for your hospitality and an awesome City to visit.

Excellent location

We had a great time in st. Catherine's. Jim gave us cherries and plums. We walked downtown to the beach and dinner.the next day we ride our bikes to Niagara on the lake. Great neighbors we met also there.

Very nice!!

Very convenient place with a Harbor and an incredible Carousel that Jim and Lisa recommended...
Nice talking to you guys! Loved the carousel!!
Did I mention, Only 20 mins from Niagara Falls?

Terrific Hosts

Their location is only a short walk to the waterfront and the restored Carousel that you can ride for only 5 cents.
We had a lot of fun riding the carousel with the tickets our hosts gave us. Never too old to ride a carousel!
There are also lots of unique little shops and restaurants in the area.
But my best memory will be how helpful our hosts were. We had a few minor repairs that needed to be done and they were so helpful in directing us as to where to go, making phone calls for us and even offering to take my husband with him to the states to pick up a part!
No that's going the extra mile! Thank you so much for everything, it was so nice to be have met you both.
